(NaturalNews) According to Dr. Daniel G. Amen, the founder of Amen Clinics in Newport Beach, the avocado fruit is loaded with a kind of fat that can be used up immediately to provide energy. This is a nice addition for salads and is a great-tasting fruit so it is not that hard to consume on a daily basis. The Hass Avocado Board (HAB) is an organization in the marketing and retailing world that supports laboratory studies carried out to look into the different health benefits of avocados. They focus on the advantages of eating avocados for cardiovascular conditions, management of weight, diabetes mellitus, and its capability to improve the absorption of nutrients by the body. In one of its clinical researches, it was found that consuming half of an avocado fruit along with lean hamburger considerably impeded production of a compound in the body that causes inflammation as opposed to eating only a lean burger without the fruit.

Check the benefits of avocado:

Limit carbohydrate intake

This source of monosaturated fat or raw fat has high levels of potassium. It aids in balancing potassium and sodium levels required by the body. Eradicating carbohydrates is the best way to sustain health and maintain weight. However, when veering away from consuming carbohydrates it is also necessary to ingest sources of healthy fats like those from avocado fruits, uncooked butter, coconut oil, and organic eggs among others.

Limit protein intake

There are substantiated facts that indicate restricting protein consumption can be beneficial for long-term health and prevention of terminal diseases like cancer. Nowadays, a lot of people are taking in too much low-quality protein like beef and those from animal sources bred using confined feeding systems. If you eat less protein, you also have to take in healthy fats from avocado fruits, coconut oil, olive oil, olives, nuts, and raw butter.

Health benefits

An avocado has anti-inflammatory properties and a whole range of other properties that are beneficial to health. One study indicated that this potent fruit can help in preventing liver damage. Another study used avocado and other fruits to feed to laboratory rats. The rats were injected with a strong substance that is harmful to the liver. This toxic chemical negatively affected cell production and led to apoptosis. The lab rats that were given avocado experienced only limited liver damage compared to those who were not fed with the said fruit.

To sum up

Dr. Amen concludes that avocado is rated to be a very safe product even following exposure to chemicals because it has its own natural protection. It is truly among the safest traditionally cultivated fruits that are available in the market. Majority of medical experts assert that it is not necessary to buy those organically grown. The avocado has thick skin that provides protection from pest control substances. Hence, purchasing the more expensive varieties or organic fruits is not really necessary, especially if you are on a tight budget.
